Whiny Bitch: Twitter is biased as it pertains to political pundits.
Today, Twitter suspended my account for twelve hours, claiming that my tweet (posted above) violated their community guidelines.
“You may not promote violence against, threaten, or harass other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability or serious disease.”
I said Jake Tapper was behaving like a whiny bitch, due to his offbeat comments regarding the former President Barack Obama and former First Lady Michelle Obama dancing at the Jay-Z and Beyonce concert. Jake feels that since the democratic party is in turmoil, rather than dancing, BO and MO should be doing more to help the Democratic party.
Not only is my suspension utter nonsense, as everyone is talking about it. This statement speaks Jake’s credibility, or lack thereof, and the undertone of his CNN commentary — he’s an Obama hater. Furthermore, Trump and his cronies can tweet bold face lies and Roseanne, along with the vast majority of Republican and Conservatives can tweet racist and offensive remarks, yet their accounts are still up and running. I think it’s disgusting how Twitter is using that negative fanfare to capitalize on their platform. It also seems they aren’t genuinely non-partisan and cater to those who can bring in site clicks and global news coverage, even if it’s due to horrible acts against humanity. I did not wish Jake harm, nor did I threaten or use any inflammatory language. Don Lemon has received actual death threats on Twitter, what I said about Jake is harmless. Nor does it violate any of their rules.
I am curious as to why my tweet was treated with such severity when actual racists seem to post whatever they want without consequence. I have flagged quite a few accounts, and only one was taken down. Sadly, that was the least harmful of the ones that I reported; the hateful ones are still up and running. If I can’t call Jake Tapper a whiny bitch, then a vast majority of the Twitter users should be blocked, or worse banned. Jack Dorsey keeps trying to defend his company saying they don’t shadowban and participate in other biased practices, but I can’t accept that as truth. Even though they claim to be actively shutting down trolls and bots, they conviently flood all of the negative Trump coverage. Yet, those accounts remain intact. Who is monitoring these tweets? Is it actual humans or just well mapped out algorithms? I doubt we’ll never know the truth.
